So if you follow me on Instagram, you will know that I fully ate three quarters of this cake all to myself. I went back for “just one more bite” about thirty times until the cake was just about gone, because I simply couldn’t help myself…
Do I have regrets about demolishing a cake in the span of a half hour that could easily have feed ten people? No, because that’s how good this cake is. It was absolutely worth every bite, and the subsequent trip to the gym the next morning for a gnarly work out sesh.
Generally I am not a person who claims to know a lot about life. In fact if you asked me for advice about any particular subject in life, I would probably tell you that I am not the best person to ask. I’m twenty-six years old and I feel like I am in a constant state of learning when it comes to the everyday ups and downs of life. I make mistakes, and my mind feels like it’s changing all the time; So for the most part I am careful about making statements about what “I know” to be true in life.
That being said, if there was one thing I think I can say that I know for sure in this life, it’s that no matter what the situation, a freshly baked muffin always makes me feel a whole lot better. Do you feel the same way? Or maybe in your case it’s not a muffin – maybe it’s a chocolate chip cookie or a buttery scone or a slice of banana bread or a bowl of pasta.
Whatever the dish may be, I truly believe that when good food is prepared with love from the heart, it has the power to make the world feel a whole lot better; Even when we are feeling our most vulnerable or defeated. Do you guys feel the same way?
You guys! Two recipe posts in one night… This might be a new record for me. Can I get a hell yeah!?
It’s the middle of the night and I am wide awake – which is SO unlike me. Truth be told, I am usually dozing off on the couch by 9:00pm (seriously). So the fact that I am still up right now is nothing short of a miracle and purely because I am just drunk with happiness from the events of this past evening.
Confession; I’m pretty sure I promised you all this recipe about nine months ago… so to those of you who requested it, I am sooo sorry it took me so long to get it up. Hopefully we are all operating under some form of the saying “better late than never,” and we can put this injustice behind us 😀
Okay guys, let’s get right down to the facts; daylight savings is here, it’s officially Spring, so therefore; I am ready for Spring. Soooooo ready for Spring. Unfortunately Vancouver seems to have forgotten that it’s supposed to be Spring, and has continued to be not only very cold, but also very wet (sigh).
Truth be told this cold rainy weather is very typical for this time of year here in Vancouver. So Naturally you would think I would be used to the rainy Vancouver Springs by now, but for no good reason at all, every spring I get my hopes up thinking Spring somehow equals sunshine and it most definitely does not.
Alas, it will probably be another couple months before we see “Spring” weather here – but it’s okay, because today I’m making my own sunshine with the help of a very big batch of pretty pink donuts &my new favorite Spring accessory.
Fact: This is my first blog post in almost a month. Clearly I am the worst “blogger” ever.
Truth: I have been feeling totally un-creative lately… is that a word un-creative? Probably not – let’s go with un-inspired instead. I have been feeling totally un-inspired. I feel ridiculous saying this by the way. I mean how silly is it that I couldn’t even manage to post a recipe for a simple batch of cookies in the span of a month? But seriously don’t ask me that, because I don’t have anything close to a good answer to that question.
So instead I thought this might be a good time for some real talk today… how do you feel about that? No worries if you’re not into it, you can always skip down to the recipe – I won’t be offended. But for those of you who are still with me, here goes…
I’m so excited to be here sharing this recipe with all of you all on the Tastes of Lizzy T website today just in time for the weekend! There’s nothing quite like the smell of fresh, homemade muffins on a lazy Saturday or Sunday morning, so I hope this post inspires you to whip up a batch this weekend!
